Rihaku Dreamy Clouds Nigori Junmai Ginjo Sake 720ml

Description

This Nigori is quite special because its milling rate of 41% technically qualifies it as Junmai Ginjo grade sake- a rare quality level for a nigori (cloudy) sake. 

Sake Facts

Quality Grade: Tokubetsu Junmai 
Seimaibuai: 58% (42% of rice grain polished away) 
Rice: Gohyakumangoku 
Yeast: #9 
Nihonshu-do: 3 
Alcohol: 15.5% 
Acidity: 1.6 
Tasting Notes/Food Pairing:
The nose is led by steamed rice, fresh red plums, and suggestions of roasted peanuts. Bright and lean in the mouth, unlike many Nigori, and the impact is chewy with sweet rice flavors intermingling with the nutty and slightly fruity characteristics of the sake.

Press:

87 Points, Stephen Tanzers International Wine Cellar, 2007

"Hazy pale lemonade color. Aromas of squash and nuts. Big, rich, broad and dry; in a mellow, low-toned style, with a distinct rice flavor. A bit neutral but sound acidity gives this smooth wine a fruity quality."
